“The time has come”, the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: of shoes–and ships–
and sealing-wax–of cabbages–and kings–and why the sea is boiling hot–and whether pigs have wings.”

-Lewis Carroll, “The Walrus and The Carpenter” from “Through the Looking-Glass”

I may not talk of cabbages and kings or why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings, but I most definitely have some things to say. The time has most definitely come. This is the final post. Continue reading

Pilot: “This Is Us”

When it comes to any drama series, it’s not too difficult to get into the story and find a way to like the characters, maybe even relate. But with most dramas, while you may care for the characters, the drama’s not typically rooted in anything that’s close to tangible. The situation’s character’s face may seem familiar, but there’s something still missing. Something that truly makes it a one of a kind must see drama. Continue reading

‘Tis the Season: “2016 Primetime Emmy Awards: Winners”

What’s Two More?


Coming in last, as always, is the fifth and youngest broadcast network, The CW. This network is taking a mildly unusual approach and only debuting two shows in the Fall, which isn’t surprising as they only have a few hours of primetime programming and not many slots for new shows. However, as comes with all changes, other shows have to sit out until later. It’s a shame as one of the networks better shows doesn’t deserve that treatment. Continue reading

Eye Spy


Half way through this crazy and exciting week, and it looks like there are some bumps in this road. With so many new shows being introduced, and many looking promising, it was only a matter of time until one of the networks offered up something less than exciting. In this case, most don’t even come close to crossing the level of good needed to keep a show on the air. What will this network do? Oh, right, order another spin-off series. Continue reading
